GE, CH2M HILL and UGL win power generation contract from JKC Australia

By Greentech Lead Australia: A consortium consisting
of GE and a CH2M HILL-UGL joint venture has been awarded an order valued more
than $900 million by JKC Australia for the construction of a combined
cycle power plant for the Ichthys liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in the
Northern Territory, Australia.

The 50:50 joint venture between UGL and CH2M HILL has
been awarded a $550 million contract for the construction of the project.

“Securing this cornerstone project is also a reflection
of the strength of CH2M HILL and UGL’s longstanding relationship with GE across
our engineering businesses. Strong growth momentum in gas turbine generation
facilities continues to be supported, underpinned primarily through private
investment from the mining sector,” said Richard Leupen, managing director and

As part of the agreement, GE will supply five gas turbines,
three steam turbines and five heat recovery steam generators for the $34
billion Ichthys project. The CH2M HILL-UGL Joint Venture will design and
supply the balance of plant based around the GE technology as well as undertake
the complete construction of the project.

GE’s gas and steam turbine technology will generate
electricity for the onshore facility based at Blaydin Point, Darwin. The plant
is expected to produce more than 8 million tons of LNG each year.

GE Frame 6B gas turbines and SC4 single-flow steam
turbines will provide 500 megawatts of installed power capacity for the
facility. The construction of the project is scheduled to begin in mid-2013 and
completion expected by the end of 2016.

“We have an extensive track record in providing reliable
and efficient gas turbine power plants, as well as the ability to offer a
complete customized solution for power generation on the Ichthys project. Our
gas and steam turbines are able to cope with the wide range of fuel gases
encountered on a LNG processing train while meeting and exceeding emissions standards,”
said John Anderson, senior region executive, Australia and New Zealand, GE

GE to install Jenbacher Gas Engines at Landfill Gas-to-Energy
Plant in Chile

Recently, GE said it will install six of its Jenbacher
specialty gas engines at the Loma Los Colorados Landfill in Chile as part of a
major expansion of the site’s existing landfill-gas-to-energy (LFGTE) plant.
The landfill receives about 60 percent of solid waste from Santiago and is the
country’s largest municipal solid waste operation.
